Top ten starting pitchers in Phillies franchise history
6 – Jim Bunning (1964 – 1967, 1970 – 1971)
Bunning was one of the top pitchers in the league in his first stint with the Phillies. He threw a prefect game on Father’s Day in 1964 en route to his first of three consecutive 19-win seasons. Bunning also had a string of four seasons with an ERA under 3. He was a two-time All-Star with the Phillies and lead the league in shutouts in both 1966 and 1967. Bunning went just 15-27 over the final two seasons of his career in 1970 and 1971.
5 – Curt Schilling (1992 – 2000)
If you look at the totality of Schilling’s career, he would rank even higher than fifth. In his second season with the Phillies in 1993, Schilling was a key component to the NL Championship team. He won 16 games that season and was NLCS MVP. Schilling won 15 of more games with the Phillies four-times and struck out over 300 in both 1997 and 1998. He ranks seventh in franchise victories with 101.
